How you can help:

Grocery Shopping Assistant: Assist residents with grocery shopping by transporting groceries from the store to their home that might not otherwise be possible with large or multiple items to carry using public transportation.

Friendship Volunteer: Bring or help prepare refreshments or a meal at the residents' home as an opportunity for our residents to socialize with positive role models in our community. Bake/deliver a cake with ice cream for the household to share on a resident's birthday.

Handy Person: Assist with minor repairs and maintenance, pickups, deliveries, unit cleaning, light painting, and seasonal yard work.

Fundraiser Host, Organizer or Assistant: Be a third party fundraiser by hosting an event such as a concert, yard sale, or car wash, where the proceeds go to support Daybreak, or work with a team of event planners to help raise money as well as community awareness about Daybreak.

Basic Life Skills Support: Assist residents with tasks such as income tax, sewing, cooking, 'smart shopping', and budgeting.

Committee Member: Join a committee to help develop specific areas of the agency. Committees include: Communications and Marketing, Fundraising, Finance and Audit, Volunteer Co-ordination, Governance and Human Resources, and Event Planning.

Daybreak Representative/Speaker's Bureau: Visit Service Clubs, Groups, and Churches to speak about Daybreak and its needs. A script and training are provided to volunteers.

After Hours On-Call Support Person: Help provide telephone support to our residents after hours and on weekends. Volunteers do not directly counsel residents but direct them to resources such as hospitals, police, crisis lines, or their personal supports. Calls may also be property related such as plumbing problems or power outage. An on-call phone and full training is provided, and volunteers are required to have access to a vehicle.
